Time to make some noise!

Then get noisy about the BGI!

Today we’re asking the UK games sector to shout loudly to government that it’s time we had a national agency for games culture.

We’re calling on everyone who makes and loves games to make a noise about the BGI.

Here’s what we want you to do:

  1. Print this #FundtheBGI sign
  2. Take a selfie and tweet it!
  3. Go sign the petition

Thank you for your support!
